Happy

Come help me out I'm sick from the fight
From inserting a laugh where there's none
Show me where this joke got tired
Tell me you know cause I'm slow catching on..

Your trying to break me down with your tuneless song
That kept me up all night
Take me to the fair where the lifeless singers
Will let you ride up beside them sometimes

And your putting a line
Where there should be not a line
And your building divides..

Come cut me out I got caught in the wire
From believing the filtering downs
Show me where the stakes got higher
Just goes to show how slow we've become

And your putting a line
Where there should be not a line
And your building divides
And putting a line
Why are you building divides.
Is it some failing in your life.

 

Finally

Did you fall on your way
It's a long way down
Welcome back to your place
I hope you know it now
'Cause it's true what you say
We're the wrong way round

And the lie that cut the worse
Has been resolved, then reversed

Finally..

Ah come on.. show the way
Where are you running now.
Is it lack of restraint
Has you turning round.

And in the end, were both the same
You played your part, so your part to blame

When you want something that much,
It's drawing trouble on your life
And when you found something that good
It's hard to focus on what's right

And in the end what hurt the worst
Has been resolved and the reversed
And I know its not what you said
It's like the letter I just sat and read

Finally..

You found something so good
It's drawing trouble on your life
And when you lost something so good
It's hard to focus on what's right

I love it so far..

 

Dream Awake

There's a point in all your dreaming,
To every time mean has just deserves,
And every time I caught you leaving..

I had to dream awake..

And for every time I came home screaming,
And got sent away, with no warning at all,

I had to dream awake..

There's a calling, a calling, a calling,,
To everyone, who lost something

And who had to dream awake.

There's a fight were not contending,
Where we have to the words get mixed,
And the point is lost
Where we have to dream awake.

So take us under now..
Take us over now..

There's a warning, a warming, a warning,
To everyone, who found something..

 

A Caution To The Birds

The body's not secure,
The truth will not absorb,
And this crumbling apart,
Is no good for you at all..

Sound, there's order in the sound,
The sound that you don't know..

And with eyes that never look,
Past the time under foot,
And this reading in the cards,
Is a caution to the birds..

Sound, there's order in the sound,
The sound that you don't know..

 

Trying

Seven months in hiding
Buried in the sand
I lost my way, come find me

And tonight, your not even trying

Constantly reminded
That I was just in time
Don't run away, like I did

And tonight, your not even trying
Tonight, your not even trying..

 

Fake

You're telling me I should forget you
But why..
And your talking like I never knew you
But that's a lie..

And you're playing out your game again
Why are you never on my side,

And your telling me I should forget you

Come on the guy's a fake
What do you love him for
And it was my mistake
Just kicking in his door
And if it's just a game
What are we crying for

You're telling me I will regret you
But so..
And your talking like I should expect to
But you'll never know..

And he's left you in the rain again
And you were always on my mind
And your telling me I should forget you

Come on the guy's a fake
What do you love him for
And it was my mistake
Just kicking in his door
And if it's just a game
What are we crying for

I don't know anymore..

 

Sideways Down

Maybe I should just move along
But you know I'd draw blood if that's what you want

You found someone who makes you laugh
Who'd stick around but that's not what you want

You slipped at the start
And dragged the whole thing sideways down
Everybody fucks up
It's just something that's been going round

And you found someone who said he'd stay
Who'd give it all but that's not good enough

Now you're standing alone
And you're living alone cause you don't know what you want
And you're living alone
And your wondering now, cause you don't know what you've done

Maybe I should just disappear for now
Then maybe you could see a little clearer now

And you found some one who makes you laugh
Who promised you he'd never let you down
And you blame it on your broken heart
But everyone who reaches out gets stung

Now you're standing alone
And you're waiting alone cause you don't know what you want
And you're living alone
And you're wondering now cause you don't know what you've done

Maybe I should just move along
But you know I'd draw blood
If that's what you want..

 

Underglass

Your will it drifts forever in the open air
My head, it looks forever but there's no one there
Don't say, you'll wait forever then you disappear
I'll stay, ill stay forever if you want me here

Cause I'm always thinking about it

How can I accept your disappointment man
It's not exact, it's no science man
I want it less than you ever have
I will not accept your disappointment man..

Damn straight, cause there's always someone who'll compare
I'd wait, I'd wait forever if you want me here
but I'm always wrong about it

I will not accept your disappointment man
It's not exact, it's no science man
I wanted less than you ever have
How can I accept your disappointment man..

 

Ship Caught In The Bay

Leaving, but never far enough
Like a ship caught in the bay
We'll show each other where it hurts
And well make the fuckers pay
And what is it we don't do well enough
That were constantly afraid.
And clearing up the pieces when your gone
But the silence always stays

The silences and formlessness is gone
With the hand that rocked the babe
Well forgive each other what is done
There's no one we could blame
And neither side is sure enough to move
There's something in the way
And still for all the wisdom that we've got
We're suffering the same

Buried in the work what never ends
And silently we fade..
And we walk on.. on..

 

Keepsake

Maybe its all we cant take
Keeps us always returning
I'm keeping this as a keepsake
And everything else I'm burning

And maybe its cause you cant wait
Keeps you always regretting
I'm keeping this as a keepsake
And everything else forgetting

When were down, down, down,
All the way
Can we run away.

And maybe it cause I cant say
Keeps you always believing

And maybe it's cause you can't say
Keeps me always believing
I'll give you this as a keepsake
And right after that I'm leaving

And maybe its all we cant take
Keeps us always returning
I'll give you this as a keepsake
And everything else I'm burning..

I can't sleep..

Their hunting me down like an insect
Chasing me down like an insect
Crushing me down like an insect
Stamping me out like an insect
Running me down like an insect

 

Suffer In Silence

Come back, show your face
Don't you see
You're too good for this place
Can we leave.
It's not your fault, what they say
Don't believe..

Or would you rather suffer in silence.
And defeat
Or would you rather suffer in silence
Needlessly

Ah come on, show the way
I'll believe
Welcome back, you've been away
How's it been.

Or would you rather suffer in silence.
And defeat
Or would you rather suffer in silence
Needlessly..

Wake up.. It's your love calling..

 

Locusts

Don't go outside tonight
The locusts fill the sky
And the devil's work is never done
And the gypsy curse you wore
Can't hurt us anymore
As we raise our glasses to our mouths
And it's all for one

And the bells that rang in hope
Are still swinging from the ropes
We thought we'd one day perish on
And the tune you never wrote
And the words you never spoke
Have gathered up and need a song

I'm moving off, I'm packing up
I'm willing to be wrong..

Now your giving up the ghost
To the one who meant the most
And one day when she least expects she'll know
And the words you never spoke
And the tune you never wrote
Won't write itself or wait for evermore

I'm moving off, I'm packing up
I'm willing to be wrong..

 

The Blood

When you look and find
You('ve) lost your place
To the girl behind
With the honest face

Ain't that the way..

Your heroes
They pass by on broken feet
With the girls they find
Between the roof and street
On a thin escape

I can't explain where the blood goes
I can't explain cause I don't know
It finds a way

The wise, they talk of honesty
While the boats, they keep pointing
Always set for sea
A fool's escape

There's a note, I found
Reminding me, not to wait
That you'd come and look for me
And not to wait

I can't explain where the love goes
I can't explain cause I don't know
It finds a way

Ohhhh, ooooh, ooooh
